SierraWest recently released a Dolbeer Donkey in O scale. It looks awesome but I model in HO. Then going through my collection I realized I had one in HO from Rio Grande Models! I imediately started building it. While maybe not quite as good as the SW one I like how it turned out. If I were to do another one I could do even better because I learned a few things.

The boiler with attached parts. I learned a lot more about how donkeys work. Boy are those parts small!


Completed donkey before weathering.


Finished! The picture below is shown with a sepia tone effect.
